Took a stab at another one of my all time favorite songs, Brown Eyed Girl. It was really fun to learn and play. Chords and strum pattern that are used are at end of video.

Hope you enjoy it.

Verse 1:
[F] Hey, where did [Bb] we go? [F] days when the [C7] rains came
[F] Down in the [Bb] hollow [F] playin' a [C7] new game
[F] Laughing and a - [Bb] running, hey hey,
[F] Skipping and a - [C7] jumping
[F] In the misty [Bb] morning fog with
[F] Our [C7] hearts a - thumping and [Bb] you
[C7] My brown-eyed [F] girl [Dm]
[Bb] You, my [C7] brown-eyed girl [F] [C7]

Verse 2:
[F] Whatever [Bb] happened [F] to Tuesday and [C7] so slow
[F] Going down the [Bb] old mine with a [F] transistor [C7] radio
[F] Standing in the [Bb] sunlight laughing
[F] Hiding behind a [C7] rainbow's wall
[F] Slipping and a - [Bb] sliding
[F] All along the [C7] waterfall with [Bb] you
[C7] My brown-eyed [F] girl [Dm]
[Bb] You, my [C7] brown-eyed girl [F]

Chorus:
[C7] Do you remember when we used to [F] sing:
Sha la la [Bb] la la la la [F] la la la la te [C7] da
[F] Sha la la [Bb] la la la la [F] la la la la te [C7] da
La te [F] da [C7]

Verse 2:
[F] So hard to [Bb] find my way, [F] now that I'm all [C7] on my own
[F] I saw you just the [Bb] other day, [F] my, how [C7] you have grown
[F] Cast my memory [Bb] back there, lord
[F] Sometimes I'm [C7] overcome thinking 'bout
[F] Making love in the [Bb] green grass
[F] Behind the [C7] stadium with [Bb] you
[C7] My brown-eyed [F] girl [Dm]
[Bb] You, my [C7] brown-eyed girl [F]

Chorus:
[C7] Do you remember when we used to [F] sing:
Sha la la [Bb] la la la la [F] la la la la te [C7] da
[F] Sha la la [Bb] la la la la [F] la la la la te [C7] da
La te [F] da [C7]

This is just getting crazy all these videos being removed, or audio deleted!!

Sorry to see your video gone :(

Brown Eyed Girl is a song that's covered so much. Just crazy - it's not like you doing a cover is going to take away from their sales or anything.

Cool! Thanks Rod. Still think it's crazy. Am glad I got the chance to see your video though, and your tutorial at the end was great!

Neither, looks like they deleted and removed it. Now when you try to click on the youtube link for the song it say's "Rejected (copyright infringement)".

Whoa! That's crazy. At least with the Prince debacle, YT allowed you to mute the audio or pick a different song to cover it up.

Rod, that sucks about the video!! That really helped me learn this song. The timing was a bit tricky for me at first but once I got it down, it becomes very natural.

Question though, you play some chords higher up between verses – what is that?

Also, I’d love to learn the riff between the verses. Any advice?

The video is back up, after I got permission. :)

Hard for me to explain the chords and the riff. I will make a video on how to do it when I get home from work and post tonight!

Ronin,

Not sure if I was able to answer your questions, but I hope it helps.

Rod thanks so much!! That was awesome! :D I like the pause you did at "do you remember when ... we used to sing." I normally play another strum through that.

On the chord, I was actually referring to the one where you moved up several frets. I normally stay in first three frets I think across the whole song. What chord is that?

Ohh about the chord you are referring to, I dont know the name of it, but all it is, is a Bb slid up two frets. Same fingering as Bb just slid up 2, strum down twice on that, brief pause then info F then Dm. So I think, that could would be: 5 4 3 3.

Good Luck!
